With lace once again being a romantic and popular choice for brides and weddings, I thought a sugar cookie decorated with a laced fantasy rose laying on a lace background and piped with a lace border would be perfect for a bridal shower or wedding favors. Not only does lace have an aristocratic touch, but a sense of fantasy. Like my 100 year old grandma says..”All fashion trends recycle you just have wait a century or so!” All kidding aside it is nice to see lace come back.
This same design would work just as nice on a cake or a cupcake. You would need to adjust sizes and you would have a matching wedding cake or cupcakes!

For the supplies.
Bake you sugar cookies and allow them to cool completely prior to decorating them.
Mix 50/50 of fondant and gumpaste/flower paste, roll the paste to tissue paper thin or a #7 on the pasta machine.
The lace part of the fantasy rose is extremely fragile when it is dry, therefore it’s a good idea to wait about 3 to 4 hours and then attach the fantasy lace rose. You will want the flower to still be slightly pliable to prevent breakage (dry enough, however to hold the cupped shape).
Pipe a decorative royal icing lace border. Once the royal icing border has completely dried, paint the board with ever clear.
